show/hide hidden buttons
Those three dots at the top right of the address bar, used to show/hide the previously hidden buttons, now it just toggles the unhidden ones on and off. I'm on the latest snapshot, what am I missing here? I preferred the old behaviour tbh. Thx!
@vulture You're talking about extension buttons?
@vulture Open Vivaldi Settings → Address bar
In section Extension Untick the Extensions Toggle
Then you can hide/unhide separate extension buttons by context menu.
@Gwen-Dragon Does not work in the latest snapshot: if you disable the extension toggle it disappears completely. So hiding a button is essentially a permanent action (you cannot show it again unless you uninstall and reinstall the extension, as far as I know).
@Komposten If you hide the Toggle you can hide/unhide separate buttons.
But if you want to hide the extensions bar you have to enable the toggle, then you cant hide/unhide separate extensions by context menu.
That is a known bug in 2.4 Snapshot.
Bug was confirmed as
VB-50492 "Extension buttons are still visible after clicking on "hide button""
This is my extensions bar:
I have at least 2 extensions hidden, and the extensions toggle is turned off. There used to be a 3-dot button to the right of Bitwarden's icon and clicking on it would show/hide the hidden extensions. That button is missing, so I cannot access the hidden extensions unless I enable the extensions toggle (which defeats the purpose of being able to hide extensions).
@Komposten If you have hidden extension buttons you can not use the 3-dot-toggle, that is a Vivaldi UI bug.
@Gwen-Dragon Are you saying that the 3-dot-toggle should never have been there in the first place (when extension toggle is off)? If that's the case, how do I get it to show my hidden extensions?
(Your sentence isn't entirely clear to me, so maybe I'm misunderstanding you.)
This Opera workaround may help for Vivaldi as well until the bug is fixed.
I didn't tested myself.
@Komposten I tested with 2.3 and a fresh profile. The extension button has to be enabled in Settings → Addressbar. That is why it is missing in your bar.
This is what it looks like in 2.3 Stable. From top to bottom, we have:
- Extensions toggle enabled, and collapsed.
- Extensions toggle enabled, and expanded.
- Extensions toggled disabled, hidden extensions hidden.
- Extensions toggled disabled, hidden extensions visible (cjs is hidden, shown by its shaded background).
You toggle between option 3 and 4 by pressing the toggle button. In the latest snapshot, option 4 is inaccessible since the toggle button does not exist.
Edit: Also, the hide option in the context menu of an extension icon doesn't seem to work anymore, either.
@Komposten Yes, the 2.4 has a known bug regarding the extension toggle.
Have the Toggle button or have the hide extension context menu without the toogle.
seems fixed in latest snapshot, thx guys!
